Physical Activity and Human Performance

Physical activity and Human Performance

EHS has a thriving research community in physical activity, food for health and health and in human performance. This includes the use of physical activity in order to improve health, of wellbeing, activity and participation across the life course. Research included in this theme examines the relationship between sedentary behaviour, physical activity, diet and health across the lifespan. Physical activity in people with musculoskeletal conditions, chronic pain, inflammatory arthritis, neurological conditions (for example Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and Parkinson’s disease) is another important area of research, as well as human performance in sport, and the biomechanics, physiology and psychology of human performance. This theme includes the use of a range of technologies to screen, monitor, and inform users (therapists, researchers and clients) regarding levels of physical activity, and bio-psychosocial models are used to explain the correlates and determinants of physical activity in the different populations. This information underpins the design and evaluation of interventions and exercise programmes to optimise physical activity.
